The Apollo Maennerchor German Club
We are excited to announce that The Apollo Maennerchor German Club in Sharon PA will be hosting the 2017 NBAF.
The Apollo Maennerchor German Club is an old club built in 1910 right in the city. Recently, the club has been restored to it's 1910 vintage feeling in the Festhalle and the barroom.
The address of the Club is 391 South Dock St., Sharon, PA, 16146. It is north of the Bessemer site about two or three exits on I -376 to the I-80 junction (about 20-25 minutes). This is the same I-376 route most people used to get to Bessemer. Use the Rt. 18 exit off I-80 at West Middlesex where I -376 merges with I-80. In fact, at this exit there are many motels including: Red Roof Inn, Park Inn by Radisson, Hampton Inn, Holiday Inn Express, Econo Lodge and Quality Inn. There are also some 'lo-cal' motels too. These are all 5 miles from the Maennerchor or 10 to 12 minutes away.
There is also a cluster of motels further west on I-80 at the Rt. 7 Hubbard, Ohio Exit. These are also about 5 miles from the Club. This is a major truck stop area.
The Apollo Maennerchor German Club has A/C, and outside biergarten (off the barroom area and the same floor level), a room that extends off the barroom with a small stage, an ongoing restaurant, and the Festhalle is the old style room with a high ceiling, antique lighting, and a high stage with stairs on each side. The building is non-smoking, there is no TV, pool table, or games of chance.
We are pleased with our new location and The Directors of the Maennerchor are looking forward to welcoming everyone to the 2017 National Button Accordion Festival.
